Charlie is a freshman.
And while he's not the biggest geek in the school, he is by no means popular. Shy, introspective, intelligent beyond his years yet socially awkward, he is a wallflower, caught between trying to live his life and trying to run from it.
The perks of being a Wallflower is a funny but sad book. It is written from the main character Charlie's point of view in a collection of letters addressed to 'friend'.
This book shows the ups and downs of Charlie's slightly complicated life and makes Charlie's life seem like your second world.
I really enjoyed this book because of the way the author used the words. I'd give it a 4/5 and I'd recommend it to older readers because it does have quite mature themes in it.

Normal. Barnaby Brocket is a normal eight year old boy... sort of. Barnaby was born with one difference, he floats. His parents (who thinks he's a disaster) will do anything to make the family normal, which leads to the unthinkable. Barnaby's world turns upside down, literally. He tries to accomplish an exiting adventure which takes him from Brazil to New York, from Canada to Ireland. On the way he meets loving, caring friends who who understand his way of life.
I think this book will be enjoyed by eleven years an older, it's an"edge of you're seat book" that you can't put down.
9/10 "Awesome" Christopher.
